  • Title: Les Reines Carolingiennes [The author argues for an increase and, in a certain sense, consecration of the roles of queens though their powers were limited by institutions, family relations, and the female life cycle. The author briefly considers coronation "ordines," manuals describing the queen's roles, and histories. The author concludes with brief case histories of Fastrada, the wife of Charlemagne, Judith, the wife of Louis the Pious, and Gisela, the daughter of Lothar II, who was married to a Viking king. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
